The Parliament considered this a first step that requires the implementation of the rest of the steps to release all prisoners, stressing that the prisoners’ file should be given great attention.

In the meeting, Al-Ra’i praised the efforts of the National Committee for Prisoners Affairs to follow up on the prisoners’ file, expressing thanks to the UN envoy, his office, and the International Committee of the Red Cross for their kind efforts in this regard.

In a related context, the Parliament called on the United Nations to work seriously to end the blockade imposed on Sanaa International Airport and the rest of the land and seaports and to oblige the other party to implement the rest of the provisions of the Sweden agreement.
